      Sky BB outage 10th August - what was the problem?

      Does anyone know what caused the Sky outage last night? This was the first time in eleven years that I have had my Internet connection go down. When I tried to ring Sky (notice I said try) there was an announcement that said many Sky BB users were experiencing either a very slow connection or no connection but that their engineers were on to it and hoped to restore service a.s.a.p.

      Well my connection started off slow then petered out altogether and was still the same 5 hours later. Back up and running again this morning the 11th August.

      My problems started October have seen many connect Customers leave. The threads below were started to help the connect Customer
      then started running tests to show speeds
      I don't want to see it go down the "intertubes"
      your not the only one that is why I am still here
